Volunteers of America, Massachusetts is a national nonprofit, spiritually based organization providing local human service programs and opportunities for individual and community involvement. In Massachusetts, we run comprehensive programs for abused and neglected adolescents, adults and youth in recovery from drug and alcohol addiction, and elders in need of housing and health services. We reach out to those most in need, especially the vulnerable, the hardest to serve, and those facing multiple challenges. Our programs are designed to rehabilitate, not just treat symptoms. Our professional staff and volunteers are committed to this comprehensive mission to serve the whole person.
Volunteers of America has over 90,000 volunteers serving over 2 million people nationwide. The goal of Volunteers of America is to provide people with the help they need to make positive changes in their lives. Here in Massachusetts, we serve over 2,500 people each year. Our focus is at-risk youth, adults in recovery from substance abuse and elders in need of housing and health services. We invite volunteers to share their individual talents to our programs teaching basic computer literacy, arts and crafts, parenting techniques, theatre, creative writing, personal finance and career building skills, as well as general tutoring, friendly visits with the elderly, musical performance and personal grooming- hairstylists, manicurists etc. We are open to any opportunity volunteers wish to provide.
